Tegu on poeetilise dokumentaalfilmiga Kihnu rahvalaulikust Järsumäe Virvest, tema elust ja laululoomingust. Vana naine on loonud oma elu jooksul väga palju laule ning nüüd pärandab ta need laulud noorele tüdrukule, kes omakorda õpetab neid laule väikestele lastele. Laiema avalikkuse jaoks seostub Virve nimi lauluga “Mere pidu”, mille sünnilugu filmis samuti põgusalt avatakse. Filmis teevad kaasa Astrid Nõlvak (Böning), Olavi Kõrre jt.
Paljajalu mustal mullal ehk orjus Eestis (2003)
Sadagu taevast kas või pussnuge, ikka koguneb igal hommikul Tartu turuhoone ette kümneid inimesi, kes kauplevad end seal mitmesugustele tööotstele. Rahvas kutsub seda platsi orjaturuks, pakkujaid endid turuvarblasteks. Kas elatise teenimise kõik muud võimalused kaotanud inimesed on selles ise süüdi? Või on viga meie ühiskonnas? Ehk tuleks need alandatud ja solvatud inimesed lihtsalt üle parda heita? Või määrata neile tugiisik, kes nende eest hoolitseks ja nad ühiskonda tagasi tooks?

This film takes place in the Velika Hoca monastery in Serbs South-Kosovo enclave amongst the orthodox munks. The bearing idea of the film is that the human instict to survive is realized through human kindness and caring for others in addition to following the religious principle “Do not kill, but forgive”.
Class of 1943 — ‘remember us when we are gone’ is about the fate of five boys of an Estonian boys gymnasium who were all forced to join the German army in 1943. They were promissed it would only be for nine months – afterwards they could go to university. But things turned out otherwise: instead of university they were sent to the eastfront. By miracle they survived the war in hospitals and prisoncamps.
The film is based on archive footage and pictures and tells the tragic story of a generation of Estonian boys who left their youth in the WW II.

The Grand Old Man of the Estonian Documentary Andres Sööt starts a trip of 800 km in North Spain to follow the ancient pilgrimage route of Camino de Santiago, reaching the coast of the Atlantic Ocean in Finisterra – “at the end of the world”.
This is a part of Spain „kissed in a hurry“ and a part of the author himself – retold as honestly as possible while traveling alone with his back-back.

First-ever documentary about Dora Gordine, an elusive, yet crucial figure in the history of sculpture. Lauded by the critics as the world’s most talented female sculptor in the mid-1920s, as well a pioneer of Oriental exoticism, the “Girl Wonder” was to continue her steady rise well beyond her contemporaries, having one of her statues unveiled in 1963 by Queen Elizabeth II herself. Until recently, little has been known about the origins of this enigmatic woman, owing much to her constant efforts to hide, alter and even blatantly lie about her past. Born in Latvia, raised and trained in Estonia, rising to fame in Paris, Gordine worked herself into art history books in the Far East, finally settling in London – there was no stopping this insatiable spirit.
Disowning her family and cutting all ties with her Jewish past, Gordine manipulated her way into the English aristocracy via a marriage of convenience to the son of an Earl. Both gay, the pair became the leading collectors of Russian objéts d’art in Europe, while Gordine immortalized in bronze every high society figure and movie star who crossed her path. The documentary explores her masterfully choreographed life through its dramatic lows and decadent highs, unearthing shocking secrets and shedding light on truly glorious art. Written and directed by Annaleena Piel Linna, edited by Jaan Kolberg, produced by Peeter Urbla.
